WHAT IS PHYSIOTHERAPY?
Physiotherapy or physio as it is frequently called is a health field which is aimed at the assessment, maintenance, and restoration of the physical function and performance of the body. Without our bodies performing at an optimal biomechanical level you will inevitably run into issues and develop imbalances or dysfunctions (not moving properly) that lead to pain and decreased performance.
